Summoned by Mayor Thomas to visit the farm once owned by their late grandfather, a young city-slicker returns to Mineral Town to find the once lush farmland has fallen into disrepair. Memories of idyllic summers spent in Mineral Town come rushing back and they immediately pick up their tools, vowing to restore the fields to their former glory. In their new hometown, they'll tend the land and become part of the bustling rural community. Along the way to becoming a world class farmer, they'll befriend townsfolk and, perhaps, even find romance.
